New Jim Ross Blog: Bret Hart/WWE Update, Damon/RAW

Matt Boone

The following are highlights from the latest online blog from WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross:

JR on Bret Hart’s Return: I will be interested to see how, or not, the Bret Hart returning to WWE issue will be addressed on Raw, or not, or if it actually occurs as many of us hope. I think it is a lock that we see the ‘Hitman’ in early 2010 but that could simply be my wishful thinking.

JR on Johnny Damon hosting RAW: How will Johnny Damon do as the guest host o Monday night Raw tonight from Damon’s hometown of Tampa? That’s anyone’s guess but the Guest Host role is and always will be a crap shoot. Some Hosts ‘get it’ and deliver while others find out quickly that they are in somewhat over their heads or in another ‘world.’ I still like the Guest Host concept for Raw and think that it is unpredictable, which is a good thing, and it provides for a significant amount of media stretch outside the normal bounds of the genre.

JR on Strikeforce this past weekend: The Strikeforce show on Showtime on Saturday night was a damn entertaining broadcast. The show moved well and felt significant as I caught the replay late Saturday night. It was one of the better MMA televised events that I have seen in a long while. Congrats to all involved.
